Joan and Gary Marlow live in Yreka, and on the morning of December 4, 2011, discover that their home has been burglarized. The burglar took the usual stuff: a camera, a television, mobile phones, Ms. Marlow's purse, Christmas presents (presumably not yet wrapped), and . . . a carton of Virginia Slims cigarettes.
Weird. But I guess cigarettes are getting expensive. The new rage: cigarette theft.
Oh, and when officers search the defendant, Robert Jones, they find in his possession . . . a carton of Virginia Slims cigarettes.
Case closed. Clearly.
Oh, yeah. Lots of other stuff from the Marlows was in his possession as well.
That probably helped the jury convict.
